We all know what it's like
life can be a pain in the rear
what with work, the kids and those bills we all fear.

we're all different
and we cope in various ways
whether it be yoga, swimming
or expensive holidays.

Well there all fine
and whatever works for you
but for me when i'm all stressed out
those things just won't do.

So when 'i'm up to here' with it all
and life seems to have lost it's fun
there's nothing i like better
than getting out for a run.

I totally understand
it's not everyone's idea of a lark
all that puffing and panting
and endless laps of the park.

Don't get me wrong
i know the older you get
the harder it can be
but when i'm out on that road
with the wind in my hair
my troubles are gone
i feel free.
